Corporate Philanthropy

Corporate partners have the opportunity to make a lasting impression on their business relationships by providing unique, creative experiences in Charlotte. 

McColl Center is where the practice of creation and community intersect; unlike an established museum, we support and build connections between practicing, contemporary artists and the Greater Charlotte community.

Through public events like Ignite Nite, over 140 regional community members, artists, and local businesses joined together in a city-wide evening in celebration of Charlotte’s creative sector. With a mix of virtual and in-person participants, creativity seekers and artists were able to discuss the immeasurable impact art and creativity have in Charlotte while igniting their own creative energy with a mystery box of art supplies. This is just one example of the innovative, unique experiences McColl Center strives to provide in Charlotte.

In addition to our public engagement events, McColl Center is open to the general public for complimentary admission to view exhibitions and connect with artists during studio hours. Art collectors, whether seasoned or beginner, are able to make artwork purchases through McColl Center, providing income directly to our artists.

McColl Center supports a positive infusion into the local economy through community engagement events at our historic facility on N. Tryon. From exhibition openings and viewings to parties, summer camps, and evening workshops, employment of creative professionals, and venue rentals, McColl Center generates over $2M of economic activity in Uptown Charlotte.
